Center for Economic Education
Our Objective: to improve decision making in the Commonwealth by providing education, training, and resources to K-12 teachers so that they can teach economics, personal finance, and entrepreneurship in their classrooms throughout the EKU service region and central and eastern Kentucky.
The Center was established on September 16, 1975, and is currently housed in the EKU College of Business. We are part of the Coalition for Financial Literacy in the Commonwealth (CFLC), which is a network of economic and entrepreneurship education providers that are affiliated with the Council for Economic Education (CEE), a nationwide network that leads in promoting economic and financial literacy with students and their teachers. CEE's mission coincides with our objective - to help students develop the real-life skills they need to succeed. We work to equip teachers to teach students to think and choose responsibly as consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce, and effective participants in a global economy.
Reach out to us if you are in need of resources or services in the areas of economics, personal finance, or entrepreneurship for teachers and students.
